  • How to Make Fiber Art Projects in 5 Minutes

    How do you find time to work on your fabric art ? It's a question I hear often (sometimes in my own head). Turn painted fabric into fabric art in 5 minutes. We'd all love hours to spend in our studios--but that's not realistic for most who aren't full-time artists. So how do you find...

  • Hand Embroidery Made Modern with Simple Hand Sewing Stitches

    Hand embroidery often has an old-fashioned connotation, especially if you grew up following hand embroidery patterns for cross stitch or hand stitching Bo Peep-like ladies on pillow cases.

  • Patchwork Quilts Then and Now
